My farrier was here today and one of here clients needs to rehome her two fainting goats. 2 girls! I did some maneuvering with my husgand (who is so overrun with chickens, etc) and he gave the okay. We are picking them up Monday. I am SOOOOOOOOOO exicited. We have 3 dwarf nigerians and we love them, but they are whethers.

So now I can plan for a kid or two.....and some milk and cheese making.

Anyone have anything to share about them? I will post pics when they arrive. I have wanted one of these for a long time....

That's great! I have heard a lot about the breed, they seem like great goats. Can't wait to see pictures!

When they get there give them time and patience and maybe they will warm up to you. They are a different type of goat as they are basically a meat goat like a Boer. Some take time and when they see you feeding and petting the others some will warm up. If you breed them I would breed to a Nigi or something small depending on their size. They can be trained to milk but dont have any here. Just take it slow.

Okay, perfect post to ask my stupid question::

Why have an animal that faints??

I had an opportunity to get some but didn't because I knew I'd be scared everytime I saw them on their side on the ground that they were dead.....

Love my pygmies!!!

I'm very excited for you! You will love them and since you already have goats you're a step ahead on taking good care of them.

We will need to see pictures.
